released July 15, 2013

Instead of focusing on one single type of sound source as in his previous “musique concrète,” EMERGE creates a warmer, more ‘organic’ imaginary soundscape in this piece, using sound materials as diverse as church organs, electric guitar feedbacks, and field recordings of animal sounds.

EMERGE’s often purist, acousmatic approach of processing sounds to the point where they lose all referentiality to the original instrument or noise they have evolved from, is replaced here by a new approach. You can still tell that organs and natural sounds are involved here, and they all convey a pleasant sense of ‘analogue-ness,’ but it is still impossible to tell what is what. And then again it might just be foghorns of ships passing through the rainforest. A soundscape piece from a landscape experienced as in a dream, half-familiar yet strange.

igloo magazine:
Whereas the source material for Oneirism is left to the imagination, Desecrate, a simultaneous three-inch CDR release, has been construed from church organ, field recordings and electric guitar fed back by label mate Gerald Fiebig, translated by Emerge into a hopeless trek down an abandoned tunnel echoing with the ghosts of long-passed trains in its rails and cables.
(Stephen Fruitman)



EMERGE versetzt einen mit seinem Desecrate (ACM 1020, 3" CDR) in den Dschungel. Zu exotischen Vogelrufen mischen sich dröhnende und tutende Sounds, wie von Nebelhörnern oder dunklen Orgelpfeifen. Tatsächlich liefern eine Kirchenorgel, Gitarrenfeedback und vogelige Feldaufnahmen das Klangmaterial. Wieweit Sascha Stadlmeier den Akzent vom Abstrakten ins Konkretere verschiebt, hängt letztlich davon ab, ob sich die Imagination durch dieses Dreamscapeambiente in magisch-realistische Gefilde locken lässt. Der Titel Desecrate - schänden - befrachtet meine Einbildungskraft immerhin derart, dass ich zwischendurch Kirchenglocken höre, aber wie vom Grund eines Staudamms. Oder dass mich motorisches Brummen an Maschinen denken lässt, die sich in den Regenwald fressen. Mit etwas Phantasie passt dazu dann das Sausen von Whirlies und Rieseln von Regenmachern. Doch welcher Schamane hätte schon die Zaubermacht eines Gandalf mit seinem "¡NO PASARÁN!"?
